Katara is a cultural village where people gather to try the cultures of the world. With beautiful theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries and high-end facilities. The aim is that in the future Katara can be a reference for multi-cultural activities. What most called my attention was a space just like the Coliseum. It is really sumptuous. Golf cars are available all over the place and you can have a general view of the space.
